the puck drop at 10:00 p.m. new ar's day and after the game you can find complete coverage of all of that action. i guess everybody should be that excited about a christmas present, right? >> anchor: that's what i look like this morning. i hope santa brought you everything you asked for, liz . >> anchor: i tried to be a little calm but you tow i think there is something about just getting up early on christmas morning that will never go away. now i'll tied of course. course.. as much as it's being dark outside makes it even more sleep sleepy an with a water temperatures we have been having too. it just maximum you want to take a nap . it is all a little confusing. i towly understand that. it was like my poor cat watching the yule log last night and just walking behind the tv. he couldn't figure out what was going on there. we did not set a new record today for boston. 62, did not make it up to the record of 65 but worcester tied the old record from 1964 and a new record for providence of 64 beat the record from last year of 63 degrees.
history have we ever seen a christmas 60 or above in boston. today makes number 4 on that list. it puts it into perspective to just think that we should be seeing highs for this time of year in the upper 30's. this is so far from that that it's not even funny so. hopefully you got outside and enjoyed it today. if you did not you still have time to do so of we're still sitting in the mid 50's bedford to boston worcester as well. 50 kegs for norwood now and dewpoints a lot more manageable today. that more dry air as well to the not of us. however, it's not soupy like it was last night and so dense fog not really concerned with that as much as we were as we made it through last night. however, there are some showers trying to work in to the south coast, buzzard waters bay, came cod and islands. that will be for the evening hours and maybe closer to midnight but it doesn't look like it lasts for very long. those showers that do push in. i even think this forecast model is a little over done of the most of that wet weather staying to the south of the mass pike as we head into the overnight hours hours.
sprinkle on the south coast. 38 to 46 temperatures stay mild. and if you get a break in the cloud cover out there, then you will see that full moon, our full cold moon and the first christmas moon we've seen since 1977. really cool article that i read from the "washington post" that was about all the history tied up in that christmas full moon. you have to check that out. amazing. post low cloudy tomorrow. cooler temperatures but still not cool for where we should be for this time of year. highs tomorrow about ten degrees above noral. and we're looking right around 50 for most locations to top out out. we do get another boost in temperatures for sunday a little wet weather as well, but then look at that plummet as we get into monday. that. saturday mostly dry until we work into the late day overnight hours and into early on sunday. and then the colder air cans in behind that front and it stays with uses we kick off next week. so what's going on with tuesday. that's the big question everybody is talking about this. i will tell you what?
treading more toward a milder air mass working in with that wet weather. now i do still think there is a good chance we start off with snow and possibly ice and a messy morning commute on tuesday but it's looking more wet than white at this point and we'll continue to watch it for you. there will be pretty on the line sunday afternoon when the patriots and jets renew their rivalry in the meadowlands. new england shared the top spot in the afc with a win with a loss for the jets assures gangrene will come up short for the pub for the playoffs. the jets entering week 16 with the fifth ranked defense in the nfl. allowing just under 20 points her game also an opportunity, incorporated third in the league for 28 take aways and five of their last 7 meetings decided by three points or less against the pats. tom brady expecting another stiff test in the latest chapter of this heated rivalry. it hadn't ever really been this defense that you know has been kind of walk in the park
it's always been a big challenge but starts with having really good players. they do now been well-coached or really well-coached this year. there is a lot of scheme things they do that are challenging to prepare for. so it's tough. >> anchor: not often the patriots go into a game without a clear-cut advantage at the quarterback position but that will be the case sunday as patriots take on a red hot ryan fitzpatrick. the harvard alum already hitting a new career high with 26 touchdowns still with two weeks to play. ten of those 26 scores forfeits patrick have come in the last four games. a stretch posting better numbers across the board than even one tom brady. count the patriots defense among those not surprised by the 33 33-year-old fitzpatrick success this season. i think he is a smart guy. he has been in the league a while. again, he is able to comprehend what's going on out there and
in the best position so again i think he has done a great job and it's another challenge for us this week. >> anchor: having one of the best one-two purposes in the nfl to throw to certainly helps out the dynamic due off eric decker and brandon marshall combining for over 2,100 yards on 165 catches to go along with 21 touchdowns. newly minted pro bowler malcom butler certainly knows that pats d will have to be at its best. i think one of the best pairing in the nfl. they both big, they both can run run. big catch, run after the catch, so we just got to do a good job out there and cover those guys. this group is feisty and they come up and hit you in the mouth and play physical so we're going to get a couple of students. we just have to capitalize on them. >> anchor: looking the hat by malcom butler. remighter bruins and canadians are just one week away from taking their story to rivalry out doors facing off at gillette
showcase game on new year's day. for quebec native patrice bergeron an extra special team he has all rooted for . growing up i was a fan and back then the rivalry with montreal was up there as well and so it was pretty eaty for me to make the transition and easy also for my familiar low to cheer to route for the bruins so it's going to make everything great for everyone come january 1 . and you can catch ron's full interview with 7's alex corddry sunday night on"sports xtra." that's sports. all right, tre, thank you.
